  • With the shift in social attitudes, women became less reserved towards this novel practice and began coercing physicians to administer powerful anesthetics during labor. (wikipedia.org)
  • volatile
  • Vinyl ether, also known as divinyl ether, divinyl oxide, Vinethene (pharmaceutical trade name) and ethenoxyethene (IUPAC), is a clear, nearly colorless, volatile liquid which was briefly used as an inhalation anesthetic. (wikipedia.org)
  • Effects
  • Some anesthetics have been rejected for therapeutic use because they form explosive mixtures with air, because of their excessive irritant action on the cells that line the major bronchioles of the lung , or because of their adverse effects on the liver or other organ systems. (britannica.com)
  • A patient under the effects of anesthetic drugs is referred to as being anesthetized. (wikipedia.org)
  • Using samples received from Princeton, in 1930, Leake and fellow researcher Mei-Yu Chen published a brief study characterizing the anesthetic effects of vinyl ether upon mice. (wikipedia.org)
  • Combinations of anesthetics are sometimes used for their synergistic and additive therapeutic effects. (wikipedia.org)
  • onset
  • They have a slower onset and longer half-life than ester anesthetics, and are usually racemic mixtures, with the exception of levobupivacaine (which is S(-) -bupivacaine) and ropivacaine (S(-)-ropivacaine). (wikipedia.org)
